    “Monitoring” is such an interesting term compared to tracking, surveilling or spying. Sounds like they’re just making sure you’re okay when driving. All of this data that’s being collected surreptitiously is going to be declared toxic and unusable in the coming years. The brands who get that will have a big leg up on all the companies who don’t.

  • Seriously Consumer Reports, “this is not a privacy issue; it’s a safety issue.”? Don’t say that. You know people are reading Orwell these days.

    It’s really strange to see where these lines are drawn. As the article points out, our smart phones know more about us than we probably know ourselves. Ditto

    It’s really strange to see where these lines are drawn. As the article points out, our smart phones know more about us than we probably know ourselves. Ditto for our social media accounts. If our cars do it though, people are up in arms.

    I think it comes down to the physical and the invisible. Humans have a primal sense that alerts us when someone is watching, and it’s not a good feeling.

    As cars become more autonomous, there’s also this weird shift that occurs, where the automakers and software companies have a higher liability (humans doing less). It only makes sense they want something to make sure that drivers haven’t caused an accident.

  • If this is a safety issue then the camera is facing the wrong way. Video proof of an accident or fraud would be much more valuable to the consumer. An active system with no buffer shouldn't make anyone feel better. When the car gets hacked via its bluetooth the system could be altered, maybe put your

    If this is a safety issue then the camera is facing the wrong way. Video proof of an accident or fraud would be much more valuable to the consumer. An active system with no buffer shouldn't make anyone feel better. When the car gets hacked via its bluetooth the system could be altered, maybe put your phone down and drive. Time away from your phone is proving healthy, what better excuse than a nice drive.

  • Where to begin... the CEO of a leading cyber security Co explained the new national text message system can access our microphone on our cell phones. Ergo, this camera has many privacy implications. It should be an optional system with full disclosure.

    Where to begin... the CEO of a leading cyber security Co explained the new national text message system can access our microphone on our cell phones. Ergo, this camera has many privacy implications. It should be an optional system with full disclosure.

    Next, my Jeep automatically shuts down when I am idle. If I do not override the system manually and forget, I run into a series of problems. One being sometimes at start up my car will shut down, and this becomes a safety issue where I have to turn on the hazards and reboot the car.

    Remember the self driven Uber accident? So does GM really want to take on this liability of a system that takes over a car? Stockholders might want to consider selling, once we get the US car trade under control in China.

  • They say data is the new oil. When all cars will be electric, it certainly makes sense. 😎

  • So here is an idea for all software companies. They need to create a software that's built in EVERY phone that detect your speed and SHUT DOWN all apps except google map, music and making a phone call. Once you get to 25mph you can only use certain apps. Problem solved. Please just don't forget where the idea came from first.

  • Cameras are everywhere. Data collection is every where. One can’t even take a vacation in peace anymore without the suspicion that somewhere in that hotel room or Airbnb, there might be a tiny hidden camera making a movie out of your stay. People want to do less- we are getting lazier- technology is

    Cameras are everywhere. Data collection is every where. One can’t even take a vacation in peace anymore without the suspicion that somewhere in that hotel room or Airbnb, there might be a tiny hidden camera making a movie out of your stay. People want to do less- we are getting lazier- technology is brain washing is into doing less. Doing less apparently equals better quality of life. I don’t know in whos’ mind that makes sense. It’ll only get worse and soon enough there will be no privacy at all.

  • Smart cars that track the driver's eyes for attentiveness. I love it.

    This is also fascinating for future technology, potentially using iris scanning technology to interface with your vehicle and make purchases.

    Could we be looking at a future of semi-autonomous cars that are less expensive as hardware

    Could we be looking at a future of semi-autonomous cars that are less expensive as hardware, but that direct the driver to purchase apps for convenience, entertainment, and functionality?

  • Everyone should step back and think for moment. What is the goal of the general public? The goal is too get rid of trump. How do we go about getting or disposing of trump? We believe ignoring his method of keeping his name in all methods of media, that will cause him to become depressed. With out popularity

    Everyone should step back and think for moment. What is the goal of the general public? The goal is too get rid of trump. How do we go about getting or disposing of trump? We believe ignoring his method of keeping his name in all methods of media, that will cause him to become depressed. With out popularity he is nothing. All media, all speeches, all publicly refrain from mentioning his name, and we stick to our program that benefits all the people, this type political action will win. Hope everybody understands was been suggested. I’m sure there are many ways too win. Keeping trump name on everything is not the way to win. Take heed.

  • There is no privacy. Only a vague trust that the holders of the world’s metadata might not be evil. Evidence is suggesting otherwise.

  • Technology is advancing quicker than we are forming opinions and rules on how to regulate, control, and even utilize it.

    The advancements of AI technology in the next decade is going to bring many amazing capabilities and tools...and I think many terrifying ones as well.
